Don't use the S-Video through your DVD, for the absolute best quality a direct connection to the TV is necessary. Use your RCA cables (only use the Yellow one (I think) for Video. The Red and Yellow ones are for Audio.

If I'm correct, you'd wanna set up the XBOX with the RCA cables in this way to have the best quality, if you don't have S-VIDEO.

Yellow Cable (Video) Into TV
Red/White Cable (L and R Audio) Into TV or Reciever

Anybody know what I'm talking about?
It's as if you were setting up your DVD player.

yeah, BUT, youd put the video in the reciever cause most recievers have a signal boost and smooth pass on em to make the graphics look even better
